Every 10 years, the city of Valls and its inhabitants experience one of the most traditional and historic celebrations in Catalonia: the “Festes Decennals de la Mare de Déu de la Candela”. This tradition has been in the city for more than two centuries. And it consists in that every year ending with the number “1”, the city celebrates the “Decennals”, also known as the “Festes de la Llum”.
